  • Johnnie To – Gao hai ba zhi lian II AKA Romancing in Thin Air (2012)

    2011-2020DramaHong KongJohnnie ToRomance

    In a rare, but much welcome change of pace, Johnnie To came off the back of 2009’s disappointing multinational crime thriller, VENGEANCE, with two relatively light and fluffy romances. DON’T GO BREAKING MY HEART successfully navigated a complex and hard-to-predict love triangle through the tumultuous financial tsunami that hit Hong Kong harder than most. While the next film to be released in cinemas bearing To’s directorial moniker was LIFE WITHOUT PRINCIPLE, a similarly finance-obsessed work, it was a project To had in fact been tinkering with for a number of years already. Instead, once DON’T GO BREAKING… had been completed, the Milkyway Image crew headed north into the mountains of Yunnan, where Louis Koo and Sammi Cheng would star in snowbound love story, ROMANCING IN THIN AIR.Read More »
